In January I was sent to Korea on business. On the way back I was supposed to stop in Japan to assess the progress of partner project for 4 days. Things were very behind and then the zombie apocalypse. Suffice it to say, I am still here. It has however given me the means to catch up on things needed for the house, save some money away and purchase the items needed to build my dream board. A very, very rare opportunity. This is what I am working on (below). I preordered the Plethorax5 back in February and it is supposed to deliver mid-June. The last two things I have left to purchase is the Boss ES-8 and the SA750w Schmitt Array pedal board!!! Those I will order over the next few weeks. The rest is already waiting at home. I will be stuck here for much longer and it is killing me not to be home playing with my new toys. When I return I have to work on the house and a guitar for someone before I can work on this. (>_<) I consider this to be the best problem ever! It will be wired to be my W/D\W live rig. It looks like a ton of gain stages, ok, it is a ton of gain stages but it is simpler than it looks. Upper shelf: 1. Blue Note Pro for low gain (hair) 2. Ethos TWE-1 for mid gains. 3. Jam Pedals Rattler for high gain. 4. TC PlethoraX5 for mods, delays, verbs. lower shelf right to left all set and forget items: 5. EP Boost assignable in front/behind of any gain stage (ordered today) 6. Moolon Brithish Octah (octavia for Hendrix tunes mainly) 7. Pedal Pawn Fuzz (for Hendrix stuff) 8. Origin Effects Cali76 Compact Deluxe. (used after low/mid drives) 9. Loopi active AB/Y w/polarity switch to split wet and dry signals. (most likely mounted underneath) 10. Ethos Preamp OD used as Wet side preamp only. 11. Boss DC-2 w Bottom row: 12. EB Vol Jr Tuner (exp pedal) 13. Boss ES-8 Midi/Loop Switcher. 14. Digitech Ventura Vibe. I ordered all GigRig power supply components needed as well so it should run dead quite. The Wet sides go to two 1-12 Ethos powered cabinets (30 watts each). The dry goes to a '68 CDR Deluxe Reverb. I wanted to post because I want to chronicle the build and video demo the PlethoraX5 as I think that thing is going to be a game changer. Any advice on the ES-8?
